On this Memorial Day, let’s enjoy the lake or the picnic or the backyard barbecue. But let’s also put at the front of our minds the veterans who have served our country honorably and have paid the ultimate price for freedom. Many come home to lead productive and exemplary lives. But many do not. They come home broken and scarred and in need of help from all of us who stayed behind.

One of the most productive nonprofits that serves veterans, primarily homeless veterans, is Operation Stand Down. The Chicks have been privileged to do a ride around with J.C. Smith of Operation Stand Down as he seeks out homeless veterans to offer them services, food, medical care or just a friendly moment of conversation.

If you feel so inclined, visit their website and make a donation. That is something real and meaningful you can do on this Memorial Day for our veterans.



About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.
